    You can go about an inch or so. It's more like how it affects the alignment though. Also think about ground clearance. 348s have like 3 inches of threads below the perch, so theres a lot to play with.

    I recently changed to 355C wheels for my 348SS and had my F-car aligned and corner balanced at Moorespeed in Austin, which required 6 hours of shop time. From that experience, it is clear to me that to "lower" a 348 is a pretty tricky deal and I'd be willing to bet that alignment and corner balancing would be required to maintain proper handling. Just my point of view. Jim
